Problems with current blockchains

No real cloud

No existing solution that makes affordable computational resources and storage easily accessible from the smart contract layer.

No intrinsic value

Price fluctuations driven by hype make cryptocurrencies and apps built on top of them unusable in real life.

Not scalable

Fixed throughput of blockchains is not enough to handle growing traffic. Smart contracts platforms face blockchain size explosion.

Nebula Network solution

Distributed Cloud

Enable anyone to rent out their computing power and storage that anyone can use. Make those resources available from smart contracts.

Underlying Value

Tie the value of NEBs to the real market of cloud services with patent pending emission mechanism.

The Multichain

Throughput of the network grows with its size. Smart contracts do not need to be stored and executed by everyone.

Patent Pending Emission Mechanism

NEB coins are emitted only when new resources in the network are used.

New coins come into existence through the difference between payment and the sum of rewards. When new nodes provide resources, a higher degree of redundancy is utilized, which triggers new coins to be emitted.

To motivate nodes to provide resources under the same address, established addresses get a slightly higher reward - yet the sum of rewards is smaller due to decreased redundancy curbing the emission.

Should the amount of resources in the network ever decrease, redundancy will also be decreased making sum of rewards slightly smaller than the payment incurred by the buying nodes - which causes the supply of NEBs to diminish pro rata.

This mechanism keeps the supply of NEB in proportion to the amount of resources within the Nebula Network - a feature currently not implemented in any decentralized network.

Various security measures are instilled into the protocol so that bad actors cannot profitably simulate providing resources, return bad results, or disrupt the system otherwise.

The Multichain

As the network grows blockchain gets splitted into individual subchains.

When the blockchain in Nebula Network cannot handle the transaction throughput it is automatically split into smaller blockchains that operate independently to a certain degree, almost doubling the transaction throughput after every split.

Classical Blockchain

Nebula Multichain

To make the subchains as secure as a single blockchain we interlock them by putting the hashes of the blocks into a master chain (or a hierarchical system of masterchains if the network grows big enough). The consensus mechanism interlocks and binds them further to prevent 51% attacks on single subchains.
Nebula Network’s Multichain Blockchain compares to a classical blockchain as a multicore CPU compares to a single core CPU. And new cores are added as their needed.

FAQ

  • Is Nebula Network Ethereum based?

    No, it’s an entirely new blockchain.

  • Why are you developing a new blockchain?

    To make Nebula work we need a transaction throughput far beyond of what the currently proven blockchain (i.e. Ethereum and Bitcoin) solutions offer. That is why we are developing our brand new Multichain technology.
    Furthermore a critical economical aspect of Nebula is its resource availability related emission mechanism. In most other cryptocurrencies all emission is tied to production of new blocks (thus mining or staking) which is not the case with Nebula.

  • But can you compete with hyper-optimized data centers with tons of dedicated hardware?

    You have a valid concern - modern data centers are carefully built by talented engineers, and it might be impossible to match their raw power with a system composed of ad-hoc machines. Nevertheless the data centers are few and thinly spread in comparison to all other computers around the globe. It is those geographic and topological advantages we seek to use out to our advantage. Also note that unused machines in a data center can also join the Nebula Network. And remember that building a truly distributed platform is about much more than just raw power. For us it’s about reliability and independence. For us it’s about freedom.

  • A patent? Why?

    We want to secure seed funding and prevent early forks. Nevertheless our project will be open source, and we will try to release all IP at some time - we lean towards a stretch goal in our crowdfunding. If you have any input on that please let us know.

  • What are the differences between your project and Golem?

    Golem is a very cool project indeed, and some of our goals are similar, nevertheless:

    1. Golem is not really a cryptocurrency, and it uses Ethereum in the background. Neither Ethereum nor Golem token emission mechanisms are in any way tied to the amount of computational power available. Nebula’s main emission mechanism is tied to supply of resources such as computational power.
    2. Golem seems to have a centralized application registry where you need to put your app to be whitelisted. We do not plan to control what code you can run on the system.
    3. Golem seems not to seek a solution for storage yet.
  • What is it you are trying to do?

    You can look at it in two ways:

    1. We are developing a distributed supercomputer where everybody can join with their device, and get paid for doing so.
    2. We are developing a new blockchain-based cryptocurrency which with time aims to be rock stable as through having an emission mechanism tied to providing tangible resources.
  • Do we really need another cryptocurrency?

    Nebula Network is more than just another cryptocurrency. What makes it unique, is solid backing in cloud resources via a mechanism of emission tied to their supply. Those give Nebula real value and enforces the flow of money to those who provide valuable assets.

  • Where is the code?

    All the code will be available on github at the time of our first alpha release.

  • Is Bitcoin not already based on providing computational power?

    No - computations are performed to mine Bitcoins - they are not used for anything but securing the system via a system called proof of work. You cannot use the bitcoin network to do your computations.

  • What language is the project being developed in?

    Let us start by stating that the technology, architecture, and ideas expressed within concern us more than the language in which we express them. That being said we want Nebula Network to be performant, and to integrate well with technologies such as LLVM and PNaCL. Being a big project we wanted a type safe, statically typed language - as lovely as loose typing is for small projects it becomes problematic within larger projects and requires much more vigorous and tedious testing (which eliminated Python - which we all hold in very high regard). We wanted a language with tight control over the resources so probably one with no automatic garbage collection, but supports high level abstractions which meant no go for Go. We also wanted a popular language that has a big enough coder base to be able to expand the team quickly, and good tool support on all major platforms (IDE’s & debuggers). One which we ourselves knew well. Which eliminated Rust, but we keep looking at as it seems to be growing in popularity. Finally we chose modern C++, that is C++ with features introduced in the 11 and 14 standard revisions. We are aware of the language shortcomings nevertheless with the aforementioned standard revisions, C++ is also a surprisingly expressive and modern language. Besides the core technology we are also preparing a javascript wallet that runs entirely within the web browser and can run offline. Code being executed on Nebula Network on the other hand can be written in any language that compiles to LLVM, and we plan to provide SDK’s and tutorials for many languages.

  • I love the idea - can I join the team?

    We are always looking for talented people, eager to help the revolution. See our job offers here or contact us and we will see.
